The Salted Snail

chineses5 (1 of 1)

I have chosen you to know and believe that I am God; to witness that I am able; to taste and see that I am good. As you are made aware of My love for you, the things you have sought after will have little value to you.  Lean into Me instead of your insecurities and fears. Your insecurities and fears cause you to strive. In your striving you experience envy, jealousy and selfish ambition. These things breed pretentiousness and hurt those around you. I want you to trust Me instead. I have plans for you. You were chosen especially for good works. Good works that have already been prepared for you to do.  You are secure in Me. The doors I open no-one can close the doors I close no-one can open.  I have told you these things that in Me you may have peace. In the world you…

I am not obligated to you apart from My promises to you. So often you are disappointed because you feel that you have given more than you have received. I am not interested in the things you can do for Me. I am drawn to weakness and humility. I say ‘blessed are the poor in spirit’. There is a great idolatry-of service to Me, in My church. For it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith. It is not by works –so that no one may boast. I am eager to fill empty vessels, who by faith are waiting for their redemption. It is not by might nor by power but by My Spirit. So that you can say “I no longer live, but the life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” ~God

Matthew 5:3 The poor in spirit are blessed, for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

Romans 6:14 For sin will not rule over you, because you are not under law but under grace.

2 Cor 13:4 In fact, He was crucified in weakness, but He lives by God’s power. For we also are weak in Him, yet toward you we will live with Him by God’s power.

I see you, your knees bent and your hands scraping the dirt to find material to build. You are still making bricks like you did in Egypt. Fear is your task master. You fear that you will fail. You fear that you are not enough. You fear that you will always be unwanted. Some build walls of service so they will feel that they are valuable to Me. Some build walls of isolation in hopes of hiding. Your fears motivate you to build. These fears are not unfounded, they are very real. But, I want you to bring them to Me for fear shall no longer be your master. My perfect love drives out fear. I will teach you how to deal with the hurts and show you how to live without walls.  I called you away from Egypt, away from the fear of failure, away from rejection.  You will not be forsaken by Me, for everything that I required of you was met in the sacrifice of My son.  Don’t reject My Sacrifice for you. In all your building and effort you grieve Me because I see you trying to prove yourself. Your effort is not of faith. It is not trusting that My Son is enough. I have provided strength for you. You will walk in this strength when you choose to forsake your own ways and believe Me. ~God

Isaiah 53:5 But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.

Acts 4:11-12 Jesus is ‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’ Salvation is found in no one else.

James 4:7,10 Therefore, submit to God. But resist the Devil, and he will flee from you. Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will exalt you.

Romans 6:14 For sin (fear) shall no longer be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.

Hebrews 4:9-11 There remains then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works. Let us, therefore,

make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of unbelief.

Love you,

I am not the same as your earthly fathers. So often people view Me through earthly father tinted glasses. They view My church through broken family tinted glasses, and My Spirit through, angry, controlling mother tinted glasses. I know you have experienced these situations in your life, but I have called you to look beyond them to the truth of who I am. When you were a child, that was the only view you had, but now that you have grown, I want you to look at a bigger picture.  I want to reveal Myself to you in the broken places where you have been so disappointed and hurt by others.   As you reconcile your experiences to the truth, I will give you a ministry. The ministry of reconciliation. You will become a witness of My redemption.  Your life will become a globe of faceted glass. Each facet is an experience that I have redeemed in you, through which My glory is revealed.  I want to give you singleness of heart and vision.  I am bringing you to have an undivided heart that knows Me. ~God

1 Cor 13:11 (Phillips) When I was a little child I talked and felt and thought like a little child. Now that I am grown, my childish speech and feeling and thought have no further significance for me.

2 Cor 5:18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.

Colossians 1:19 For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Christ, and through Him reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross.

Jeremiah 32:39 (NIV) I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear Me and that all will then go well for them and for their children after them.

Definition of Reconcile (Collins English Dictionary) to make (two apparently conflicting things) compatible or consistent with each other.

I want you to look into My eyes and know My thoughts toward you. You are altogether beautiful to Me. There is no flaw in you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. I want you to look to Me and My word to you, just as you look in a mirror and see your reflection. You don’t always feel valuable because you are looking into the eyes of others. Others look to others, and others look to what the world says is beautiful, until the word beauty is too polluted to mean what I intended. This is also true of your purpose. I created good works for you, they were planned before time began. As you surrender your life to Me, you are given a new identity. I want you to begin to wear this new identity and take off the old nature. And stop giving people and circumstances the power to tell you who you are. I want you to seek the truth, for the truth will make you free. As you feel the unrest in your spirit, ask My Holy Spirit to search you and reveal any thoughts that are contrary to the truth. When you begin to know and believe the truth about who I say you are, you will be able to love others, without fear, because you won’t be concerned about what value they bring you. I will set you free, for I have come to heal the brokenhearted and proclaim freedom to the captive. ~Jesus

Proverbs 29:25(MSG) The fear of human opinion disables; trusting God protects you from that.

2 Cor 5:16-18 From now on, then, we do not know anyone in a purely human way. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come. Everything is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.

John 8:32 You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is on Me, because He has anointed Me to bring good new to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom to the captives and sight for the blind.

“You will know peace and feel secure in My Lordship. I fit over you perfectly for you were created to conform to My likeness. You are My beautiful bride. I am your soul-mate. There is rest for you in coming into Me. When you bow everything to Me, not just your salvation, but every thought, each fear and each desire, you will come to have peace in knowing that I AM. I am requesting a surrender of time from you. I want you to recognize Me as Lord over time, for I cause the sun to rise and set. You are feeling pressured by time constraints. I want you to tune into My timing and learn to wait. For I have plans for your life and will show you the way to go. I come like a winter snow. My voice is heard in the stillness. I don’t rush you, for My purposes are sure and steady. Your times are in My hands. If you are feeling rushed and desperate to make things happen, know this is not of Me. The world will pressure you to preform but I don’t want you to give in to fear. I want you to be still and know Me. As you return to Me, from your striving and doubts, I will be your God and give you a heart to know Me.” ~God

Isaiah 32:17 (KJV) And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.

Song of Song 3:4 I had just passed them when I found the one my soul loves. I held on to him and would not let him go.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world; but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.

Isaiah 43:10 “you are My witnesses” declares the Lord. “and My servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am God.”

Jeremiah 24:7 I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am Yahweh. They will be My people and I will be their God because they will return to Me with all their heart.

Love you, Corrine
